Step 1. Locate Backup

In this article

    To view the list of backups created by Veeam Agent for IBM AIX, use the following command:

    veeamconfig backup list [--all]

    Where --all is an option that instructs Veeam Agent to display information about all Veeam Agent for IBM AIX backups in backup repositories configured in the product. If you do not use this option, Veeam Agent will display information about backups of the current Veeam Agent computer only (that is, the machine where you run the veeamconfig backup list command).

    For each backup, Veeam Agent displays the following information:



    Job name

    Name of the backup job by which the backup was created.

    Backup UUID

    ID of the backup.


    Name of the backup repository in which the backup was created.

    Created at

    Date and time when the backup was created.

    For example:

    user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup list --all
    Job name               Backup ID                               Repository                         Created at

    unixsrv system backup  {bd99e384-b62f-47dc-ad38-f0b3dc5d3c40}  [srv14] Default Backup Repository  2020-03-16 11:49

    unixsrv file backup    {d2bc5ec7-9545-4740-b452-7a91db7a90c8}  backup01                           2020-03-16 13:30


    Step 1. Locate Backup Tip

    If you want to recover data from a backup that is stored in another location, for example, a backup created with another instance of Veeam Agent for IBM AIX, you can import such backup into the Veeam Agent for IBM AIX database on your machine. To learn more, see Importing Backups.
